The BeginningsHello, my name is Mike, the founder of Freedom. It all began when Google was still in nappies, the internet was reserved for the likes of NASA and mobile phones were more brick-like than smart. The year 1996, my light-bulb moment came in the pub (or was it the shower) when planning my friends stag do, it was like herding cats. My mission was to make life easy for group organisers, travelling around the UK and Europe negotiating party deals. Now more than 25 years on, how lucky I am doing what I love with a team of 17 party gurus.
Behind the scenes you’ll find a relaxed and informal office, if we're not talking with customers on the phone, chasing the hottest accommodation deals you’ll find us having a sing-song / bickering over the album on play, or engaging in 'aircon wars'.
Largely due to our fun and friendly company culture our staff retention rate is probably the highest in the industry, which is where our extensive product knowledge comes in. We get out there and 'have a go' and actually count so many of our suppliers as friends. We try before you buy.
What We Do We organise real tailor made quality events with transparent pricing and super flexible terms.
"We won’t claim to be market leaders, we don’t need to be, we certainly don’t follow the crowd either. We simply march to the beat of our own drum with our customers’ needs setting the tempo. Which is exactly why we believe our customer service is unrivalled in our market" says Carol.
We understand just how precious time spent with friends is, and especially precious when that weekend happens to be one of the biggest and most memorable of their lives, it’s a big task. We have the knowledge, the experience and the passion to make sure this goes just how it should.
The FutureOver the years we have developed MyFreedom "a party organisers dream: invite your guests online, let them pay in instalments, manage your activities and download your tickets. The latest addition to this great tool is the ability to hide certain activities from the Special Person. We've always been an advocate of surprising the birthday girl (or stitching the stag up!)" says Kevin.
You can be guaranteed as we approach half a million customers, 250 activities and 50 locations that we will make planning your next event "effortless and tailor-made".

We are planning our Hens weekend in Budapest this October and I have only positive feedback for Zoey Bond. She was always very patient, extremely nice and very helpful. She replies immediately to all my emails which I was impressed and she also gave me comfort to trust in Freedom Weekends Ltd. 5 stars to Zoey Bond for professionalism, efficient and effective service. Will update my review upon our return from Budapest next month.

The stag do was brilliant, the shooting was a great setup and catered for all ability’s plus it was a great place to have a first drink. The hotel looked from the outside like it was haunted but inside it was newly refurbished and the rooms were massive and excellent for the price we paid. And ending the night at beerkeller was really good to get us up and dancing all though they had run out of the drink most of us had pre-ordered and there was a bit of confusion when we first arrived as to where to go but overall we had a great time (although) I can’t remember much of this part. I would recommend anyone to use freedom again as it made really easy for the grooms man to check who was coming and how they paid plus no one had pay out of there own pocket then chase people around. Thanks for your help.

We did a life drawing class in Berlin in September which was a really fun stag activity. Amazing to see how hard everyone was working to try and show their drawing skills and lots of fun memories which will keep people chuckling for years to come. Thanks for Zoey for arranging this for us.

Just got back from our Liverpool hen do this week which I was in charge of organising. The company made it really easy and organised the life drawing class and hotel for us. Any questions I had (and there were a few!!) I had extremely quick responses! Hotel was central and life drawing class was very well ran. I also loved that members of the party could pay their money direct to the company so I didn't have to chase the money and then pay out. Thank you for a great organised hen do!

We had such a lovely weekend. The women running our dance class and cocktail making class were amazing. We loved both. All the activities and hotel were close together and well timed/spread out. Our hotel was best on a budget and to be honest, that’s exactly what it was. The staff were really friendly but it was budget. We decorated the room and that made a big difference and it was in such a good location at a good price. Communication was great too. Any time I called or emailed Freedom, I got a reply/answer straight away. Thank you so much xx

I was on a hen do in Liverpool this weekend. It was organised by Freedom and they were so helpful, friendly and full of advice. There were 16 of us so we needed a plan. We did Save the Groom, Bottomless Drag Brunch, 2 course Mexican Meal and Nightclub VIP. We had a blast and can certainly recommend those activities AND Freedom!!!

This company organised everything for me!! If I had any queries or worries about the hen weekend I could just call Laura and everything would be dealt with. From the accommodation to the food, spa treatments everything was perfect! Would highly recommend this company for organising any hen do or weekend away!
By Patricia Cowan
Karen and her team were amazing. Very informative, easy to deal with, and made stressful hen planning a lot easier for me. The activities all ran to plan and were as fun as advertised. Would highly recommend using this company.
